//double finger rings from Does Not Equal, an amazing, androgynous Australian brand with aesthetics very close to my heart. I really want the ring with the ≠ symbol.

//vanillascented is definitely one of my favorite blogs. Maria, the girl behind it, posts often and shows a lot of her daily outfits. plus the girl has probably the most covetable shoe and clothing collection I've ever witnessed.
Maria's aesthetics are very close to mine; she seems to like Scandinavian design and minimalism. in addition to sporting some of my favourite brands Maria also wears a lot of amazing second hand pieces. I adore her style and the fact that she combines expensive labels with second hand finds. I think if I were to steal someone's wardrobe it would be her....
my graduation is still months away but because I love planning things I started to plan what to wear. I want to make sure I'm not without a dress and without shoes a week before the occasion because it wouldn't be the first time that has happened.
first of all, for this occasion I do not intend to wear black. no matter how comfortable the color makes me feel I feel like because it's a spring party and a once-in-a-lifetime-thing it's time for me to wear something colorful. orange (a bright, slightly burnt shade) was the color I had in mind until I found this Whyred dress:
I thought the dress was maybe a bit too baggy and formless, maybe not exactly the dress for graduation. anyway, I thought I'd previously seen the dress somewhere so I dug into my inspiration files which is where I found this image:
I think combined with the right shoes, a chunky bracelet/ring and the right shade of lipstick this might be the dress I want to wear. what do you think??

//the row f10, images style.com
I hate to say this, but this is just perfect. I love everything about the row right now: the models and their hair, the all-black clothes, the pants, the coats and how the materials look. plus I love the black floor and the huge white flower arrangement in the background. I don't care if it's a fall collection, I just think the Olsens have somehow managed to make black clothing look more than appropriate for spring.

//four random things from the past week
1 an origami spike ball I made last weekend, you might think I sound crazy but origami is great. nerdy but great.
2 I made a promise not to buy anything for a while but then I found out models own was available in Finland. the shades I got are fuzzy peach, orange sorbet and lemon meringue but they make me miss spring things like sunshine and walks in the esplanade park and dry asphalt and a million other things. not good. it's still -10 degrees outside.
3 the Klaus Haapaniemi x Rosa Liksom Monsters book that I wanted to buy last spring but then I ran out of money and then the shop ran out of the books. I found it in the library today. it's filled with illustrations.
4 a delicious home made prosciutto pizza with mini tomatoes, rocket and parmesan. definitely not fat free, just the way it's supposed to be.

//the Chanel Particulière nail polish has been featured in almost every blog; it seems to have become a phenomenon even bigger than the Chanel jade green nail polish.
I also think it's definitely a lot better than the jade green one, imagine having café au lait-coloured nails... I might even opt for this.

I've fallen head over heels for grandpa-style pants as you may have noticed--- I think I've featured them in at least three recent outfit collages. I can't wait to wear my black grandpa pants, I don't really like wearing them at this time of the year because they don't look particularly good with chunky winter coats. in addition to the black ones I kind of want to experiment with patterned trousers as well. I guess I need to go raid some op shops soon.
///the watch is from urban outfitters. when I was in Stockholm every other hipster-looking chick had one. I still love it.

//I'm not the biggest fan of Abbey Lee Kershaw but she looks stunning on the cover of Vogue Australia's March issue. I love how they matched the font colours to her lipstick and nail polish.
I'm looking for a lipstick in that exact colour, anyone have any tips on where to look?
